Intercultural Communication

This course covers how the global era has stimulated transnational cultural flows of people, practices and products; local cultural complexities that were inconceivable even a generation ago; nowadays, individuals increasingly recognise not only their own cultural complexity but also the need to function effectively in culturally-diverse contexts ranging from the home and neighbourhood, to places of worship and recreation, to organisations and workplaces, and to societies and regions.

Entry requirements

A 1st degree or Upper 2nd Class Honours or equivalent in a related subject area; typically this is in the arts, humanities and social sciences but other subject areas are considered on an individual basis; professional experience in contexts which can be characterised as multicultural, intercultural, international, trans-cultural or transnational would be welcome but are not a prerequisite for the programme; such professional experience would be considered on an individual basis.
